The World Gets Better

The world gets better. It also gets worse. The time it will take you to address this is exactly equal to your lifetime, and if you're lucky you don't know how long that is. The future is dark. Like night. There are probabilities and likelihoods, but there are no guarantees.

-- Rebecca Solnit, author of Hope in the Dark: Untold Histories, Wild Possibilities (which developed from this piece) and 7 other books.
